    Cool Zubsolv Withdrawal

    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Jason. I've went through withdrawal from Oxys more times than I'd like to admit. I always came on here and read the posts of others to get through the bad stuff and know what I'm getting into. I decided to finally join up and create my own thread. The main reason I'm doing so is because there aren't many posts about Zubsolv, so hopefully I can help someone out. I'm going to be very thorough. Here's a little background. I'm 23 years old and have been doing painkillers for about 4 years. I was doing anywhere from 150-210mg of Oxy a day. I finally got on Zubsolv about 7 months ago after numerous cold turkey withdrawals and relapses. I've recently decided to taper off. My original taper was taking a little too long so I altered it. I was on 5.7mg per day. I went to 2.8mg per day for 10 days, to 1.4mg per day for 10 days, to .7mg per day for 4 days, to .525mg per day for 4 days, to .35mg per day for 4 days, and then off. I didn't really feel any discomfort. Sometimes I would get a tiny craving or some anxiety here or there, but that's it. Nothing serious at all. I think I may have even started feeling better towards the end. I don't know if it's because I went through cold turkey Oxy withdrawal so many times or what. Now, I'm finally off. I wanted to start giving a timeline so others will know what happens and maybe some can give me a little support. First off, I want to let everyone know what I'm doing to ease the withdrawal. Not sure if it works, but I've done this every time. I take a sport multivitamin along with fish oil and an antioxidant pill in the mornings. I drink a smoothie with whey protein in the morning, and eat 5 more meals throughout the day. Sometimes I drink glutamine at night. Here's an example of what I do:

    8:00am-smoothie, sport multivitamin, fish oil, antioxidant pill.
    10:00am-grapes and orange juice.
    12:00pm-tuna sandwich, green beans, green tea.
    2:00pm-orange and V8 juice.
    4:00pm-smoothie with whey protein and take fish oil.
    6:00pm-steak and rice.
    Before I go to sleep, I try to drink some glutamine.

    Now I'm going to start my timeline. I'm currently on day 2.

    Day 1: Just a little discomfort. Not a lot of motivation. Not a lot of energy. Kept getting cold, so I sat in the sun for about an hour and talked to my friend on the phone. Went to the store and bought some Epsom salt and antioxidant pills.

    Day 2: Got 6 hours of sleep. Feeling really unmotivated. Have anxiety. Eyes feel dry. My feet feel really heavy, and I keep getting cold. Legs are fidgety. I took and Epsom salt bath in the morning. I still don't feel that bad. At least nothing like full-blown cold turkey Oxy withdrawal.

    I really think it's all in my head. I also know it will get better day by day. I've taken benzos and clonidine in the past to help, but sometimes I feel it does more harm than good. The benzos make me feel too loopy and I hate the feeling. The clonidine does help with the coldness, and it will knock you out, as will the benzos. I will keep everyone updated. Also, does anyone else have any experience with Zubsolv so I can know what is to come or if people have had similar experiences?

    Also, everything I've ever taken was prescribed.

    Thanks!

    Jason

    Day 3: I took some benzos to get some sleep. Slept great. Woke up and had give someone a ride right away. I feel alright. I actually went and got a haircut. I'm still really unmotivated. Everything is a chore. I don't have lots of energy, and can not stop sneezing for the life of me. My feet also still feel heavy and my legs are still really fidgety. I have no anxiety, but I know that's solely because of the benzos from last night. I can't stop sh*tting either. So far, really not that bad.

    Just to add a couple things. I drink a ton of water a day. Probabably about a gallon. Some days I take Epsom salt baths. This is the last time I will ever go through this. I decided, I AM DONE. I changed my entire lifestyle for this. I can definitely do this. Anyone out there?

    Hey man how's it going. Hope to hear an update. I too am on zubsolv. I'm down to microgram dosages. Too anyone curious, zubsolv is just the same as subs. They say a 5.7 mg tablet is equivalent to 8mg of suboxone. There is less naloxone in it. Anyway good luck.

    Jason, hi heather here. Percocet and ambien addict for 7 years. I'm 125 was putting 330 pills every month in me for seven years. Almost died April 17 by overdose. Went to rehab. I'm 6 m sober. I got the taste of freedom of the prison I was in. I don't want any more Meds. They made me be on zubsolv and said minimum one year. Well I told them last month that wasn't happening and were tapering me off now cause I felt I was becoming addicted to zubsolv. I was tapered off correctly for a month. Now I'm three days off zubsolv. I feel awful. How long does this usually last? My doctor said I'm going thru acute withdrawal syndrome which last about 2 weeks. I am on clonodine, visatril, seraquil. Plz tell me it eventually leaves?
